"Illinois is not afraid of embracing the future my friends, they are not afraid of taking a  chance."

Yes, especially the Governors. They usually embrace the future in federal prison though.

The world is like a time machine. We are always moving forward whether we like or not, but we should trust our imagination to bring the future they way we perceive it. Darkness creates Light my friend. It always been that way. Black+Black= Brown+Brown=Yellow+Yellow=White. Aliens messing up with the universe genes.

Good things have come out of CHAOS. THE CHAOS THEORY OF THE UNIVERSE.

    That is the wrong mindset to have my friend.  Even though I have won NO money during this run up, I continue to win with each drawing with my dreams of a financially FREE future!  Although I am only amped up about this due to all the negativity surrounding the whole 1%/99% mumbo jumbo talk perpetuated by this administration, I still believe that the amount of the jackpot doesn't affect how I feel when the numbers are drawn.  Only when I see I am holding or possessing the winning combination will I let loose a Tiger Woods victory fist pump (for those who follow golf, I predicted he would win this weekend and he did, just as I also predicted I would win come Tuesday!)!!!Party

    I have about $22 in play right now, not including some prior subscriptions I had made months ago.  Today will be my major pick my number day and I will buy QPs today and tomorrow.

    I am hoping they revise the jackpot up to over $400 million by tomorrow morning as I am sure people are throwing major cash as trying to win this jackpot.  I will be happy sharing if you hold another winning ticket, but don't bother seeking me out for a gift, loan, or donation.

     "...don't bother seeking me out for a gift, loan, or donation."

    OK, I won't ask for a gift, loan or donation.

    How about a bailout?

      Lottery games are WIN or LOSE situation no matter how many tickets you buy. Oh, I'm sorry, it never crossed my mind that you might buy all the combinations to make sure you win the jackpot.

        Lol!

        If he were to win, people will seek him out because they feel entitled to his winnings. That is the mindset this government has instilled in so much of the population.

            The sales are brisk, between yesterday and this morning on my way to work, my favorite convenience store was filled with hopefuls. It might very much jump by a few millions before the end of the workday.

            Oh and about keeping calm? You my trusted LP family members from your excited chatter, might need to visit your physician before hand, blood pressures are going to be up in anticipation and should a winner be among us, well, I shall get my earplugs ready because the excited scream(s) will be deafening. Unless you leave in the mountains like ridge where, you could do a naked happy dance, without any neighbors staring....lol

            Good luck my friends, one of us is going to tame this beast.....

              Tao Te Ching.

              The ancient Masters were profound and subtle.
              Their wisdom was unfathomable.
              There is no way to describe it;
              all we can describe is their appearance.

              They were careful
              as someone crossing an iced-over stream.
              Alert as a warrior in enemy territory.
              Courteous as a guest.
              Fluid as melting ice.
              Shapable as a block of wood.
              Receptive as a valley.
              Clear as a glass of water.

              Do you have the patience to wait
              till your mud settles and the water is clear?
              Can you remain unmoving
              till the right action arises by itself?

              The Master doesn't seek fulfillment.
              Not seeking, not expecting,
              she is present, and can welcome all things.

                  My blood pressure and pulse were already up!

                  A win would allow for some relaxation to lower them!

                            Yes, especially the Governors. They usually embrace the future in federal prison though.

                            Tao Te Ching (Tao).

                            Do you want to improve the world?
                            I don't think it can be done.

                            The world is sacred.
                            It can't be improved.
                            If you tamper with it, you'll ruin it.
                            If you treat it like an object, you'll lose it.

                            There is a time for being ahead,
                            a time for being behind;
                            a time for being in motion,
                            a time for being at rest;
                            a time for being vigorous,
                            a time for being exhausted;
                            a time for being safe,
                            a time for being in danger.

                            The Master sees things as they are,
                            without trying to control them.
                            She lets them go their own way,
                            and resides at the center of the circle.

                              That is the wrong mindset to have my friend.  Even though I have won NO money during this run up, I continue to win with each drawing with my dreams of a financially FREE future!  Although I am only amped up about this due to all the negativity surrounding the whole 1%/99% mumbo jumbo talk perpetuated by this administration, I still believe that the amount of the jackpot doesn't affect how I feel when the numbers are drawn.  Only when I see I am holding or possessing the winning combination will I let loose a Tiger Woods victory fist pump (for those who follow golf, I predicted he would win this weekend and he did, just as I also predicted I would win come Tuesday!)!!!Party

                              I have about $22 in play right now, not including some prior subscriptions I had made months ago.  Today will be my major pick my number day and I will buy QPs today and tomorrow.

                              I am hoping they revise the jackpot up to over $400 million by tomorrow morning as I am sure people are throwing major cash as trying to win this jackpot.  I will be happy sharing if you hold another winning ticket, but don't bother seeking me out for a gift, loan, or donation.

                              Tao Te Ching (Te).

                              Fame or integrity: which is more important?
                              Money or happiness: which is more valuable?
                              Success of failure: which is more destructive?

                              If you look to others for fulfillment,
                              you will never truly be fulfilled.
                              If your happiness depends on money,
                              you will never be happy with yourself.

                              Be content with what you have;
                              rejoice in the way things are.
                              When you realize there is nothing lacking,
                              the whole world belongs to you.
